Tonight I was very fortunate to come across a pair of swans in a small alcove at sunset, which had wonderful subtle colours. But I almost blew it, because I was so focused on the movement and position of the swans that I did not notice I had earlier switched to manual focus mode. I was shooting handheld ruined most of the shots but managed to salvage this one. I only made basic brightness and horizon alterations so far.
Edit- I decided to show two more images from the shoot. One is not bad, a wider view and a beautiful juxtaposition of the swans as they swim away. The last image is an attempt to save an otherwise good image using the Orton technique.
